RETRACTION/CORRECTION: Bishop Amat practicing for a game it may not play …

The following statement in my article from Nov. 9 “Bishop Amat practicing for a game it may not play” is incorrect:

The Lancers’ regular-season schedule is over. The team is on a bye week and its playoff fate is up in the air. And if you go out to Amat any afternoon this week, the Lancers are in pads practicing for a future they don’t know for sure exists.

I wrote that the Lancers were practicing in pads, which would be a violation of CIF rules. I wrote that on my own volition, not through observation. I’m confident that Amat is in full compliance with any CIF rules as to practice regulations during a bye week.

I apologize for any inconvenience or problems this may have caused Bishop Amat.

  • In FULL Compliance…..ya right?

    Amat is really ticked at you now Aram. You drew attention to the breaking CIF rules…now they can’t be under the radar. It must really suck to know at best you have a 33% chance of making the playoffs and have to still practice.

  • Amat Bully

    You know CO is fighting for the Sierra league title this friday and their star RB is questionable “does CO have the backup power to replace him” that should be the headline instead of this junk…Or who would be facing WC in the first round playoffs next week with a poll. You know lets talk about winning teams.

    Aram man c’mon dude we expected more out of you FORGET amat they are done lets focus on teams that still have a fighting chance and not a wishful one. C’mon big guy your better than Fred all that little dude do is talk about Amat please dont turn the best place to blog into another Amat home……your better than that…

  • AMAT>>>AMAT>>>AMAT

    I think these blogs will shut down after it is official that Amat is not in the playoffs. What about all of the other SGV teams that are having great years. Just because your beloved Amat still has at best a 1/3rd shot at making the playoffs, you have to keep them front and center…YAWN!!!!……. Give some love to the teams that WILL be playing next week.

    People should write/call Notre Dame and ask them is that the way a Catholic school should conduct themselves. Whatever their game is, it’s shameful.

  • Amat Bully

    See Aram now your taking heat from everybody and i know your not an Amat fan but dude leave fred to giving Amat fans the lap dance they so look forward to when they read the SGV tribune. Lets talk about the other teams in the SGV.

    Amat Bully,

    I guess you don’t get the paper. There was a story in there today about Scoby. So you guys get the best of both worlds — an Amat story and a CO story.

    In the scheme of things, I don’t think this error on my part is the end of the world. But before anything got blown out of proportion, I just wanted to point that part of the story was inaccurate.

    And I do think a team practicing with no target in front of it is an interesting dynamic and definitely warrants a story.

  • Amat gets What it Deserves

    Amat Parent,
    Maybe this is SO Notre Dame’s way of getting back at those idiot Amat fans that were attacking the press box last friday night….ever think of that?

  • Harry Ballzonya

    Bully, why do you feel you need to bring up CO in this thread at all? This has nothing to do with CO but you can’t stand the fact that Aram is discussing Amat. Why?

  • Lancelot

    I think this thread is frickin HILARIOUS!!!!! Almost everybody on here is NOT FROM AMAT!!!! Yeah, stop writing about AMAT. Fred. Aram. Are you listening? HA, HA, HA!!!! Yeah right! Let me stop writing about the subject that gets the most hits in the SGV! Ah….OK?This thread is ABOUT AMAT AND THE ONLY PEOPLE RESPONDING ARE AMAT HATERS! “Now that’s funny right thar, I don’t care who ya are…..” I can hardly wait for the responses. Hey Bullie Jean!!! Consider your “Button pushed”. Time to go down!!! Respond! You know you have to! You know you will! Your worthless and weak! But don’t forget….”I’m not responding to anyone who’s team isn’t still playing….” HA, HA, HA, HAAA!!!

    amat parent,

    Put a cork in it.

    The world doesn’t revolve around Bishop Amat.

  • Real Amat Parent

    Amat parent is not an Amat parent. It’s an impostor trying to degrade the school’s name. I’ve seen this user post other comments such as claiming the education at Amat is a joke. Come on amat parent, quit pretending you’re affiliated with the school.

    AMAT parent,
    It is what it is . The format is in place and really why have a coin flip if it may not be neccessary at all .If either Crespi or ND win no flip and if both win they flip or use the head to head , I am not to sure on that . We put ourselves in this position so we must adhere to the format. If the tables were turned I am pretty sure we would go the route of wait until after the games are played because that is the fair thing to do no doubt about it . Just hope that the flip happens and we win the toss. Next time you decide to post as an AMAT parent at least capitalize the A in AMAT because you did use capitals for ND . Or is that a hint as to who you really support and where you’re from.

    When thinking of ties and 3 way coin flips I can’t help but think of the Miramonte debacle a few years back. If I remember, Bonita needed a win over Diamond Ranch to create a 3 way tie and Los Altos had a bye.

    Diamond Ranch is driving for a game winning score that would have eliminated BoHi but the Bearcats had an amazing goal line stand to win the game and keep there hopes alive.

    The coin flip happened immediately following and Bonita went from the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat as they lost the flip. A flip prior to the game would have allowed all those teams to avoid that agony – and if my memory serves, Aram expressed the appropriate outrage then.

    No harm in letting all teams know where they stand going into the last week

    This is just a correction and still all these AMAT haters?? WOW. Just admit already that you guys would love to either have your kid go there or you would love to be a part of AMAT. May the best team win tonight. Go Loyola and Alamany!
